Vanilla pods actually come from the orchid plant or Vanilla planifolia, which originally grew in Mexico and were cultivated by the indigenous people of the country. Vanilla was earlier used to flavour the cocoa drink, also a popular ingredient from the region. Vanilla was brought to Europe by the conquering Spanish and was only available to the rich for use in their foods and fragrance.
